He says: '"I felt so much better the

call on the physician and get him
to fix me up a supply of the merJi
ciuce. I was surprised' when he
handed me a bottle of Chamberlain's

. The government of Holland has a proj
ect on hand to drain the Zuyder Zee.
It is a vast lagoon of some 700 square
miles superficial area and is useless on
account of its shallowness for purposes
of navigation, while as agricultural land
it is estimated to be very valuable. The
cost of the dam is estimated at 3,075,
000 and of the draining at 13,000,000.
It is estimated that thirty years will be
required to complete the whole. Paris

WEAVING WAS AN ART
IN THE DAYS OF HOMESPUN WOM
EN USED TO WORK HARD.
Oui Grandmothers I'seil to Spend Much
Time Spinning, Weaving, Knitting. Ket
ti"K mid Kmhroldering They Manu
factured AH Their Own Cloth.
In the days of homespun four ounces
of lint, cotton or a half pound of lock
wool was a duy's stint in spinning,
though a clever spinner could easily do
twice as much. Wool was often colored
before spinning dyed black or red, then
carded with white. The resultant
thread, steel or red mixed, was wonder
fully soft and harmonious in color.
Old silk carefully raveled, then carded
with white wool or cotton, made the silk
mixed that was such a favorite for the
long stockings worn with knee breechee,
as well as for homespun gowns. They
were woven in checks, stripes and cloud
ings. One of the prettiest was dice
cloth a kind of basket weave of alter
nate white and black or gray threads,
thirteen to the group. It was trouble
some to weave a thread too many made
a balk in the pattern. Children an'1,
servants had simple checks in blue or
copiieras and wiiite. Linseys for winter
wear were gorgeous in green and scar
let and black and blue.
Dyeing was part of the home work, as
well as weaving and spinning. From
walnut hulls, bark and root came twen
ty shades of brown. Green walnuts and
sumach berries gave a beautiful fast
black that did not stain the wearer.
Hickory bark or peach leaves gave a
glowing yellow; swamp maple, a black
ish purple; sugar maple, a light leather
tint, and oak bark, set with copperas, a
handsome grayish color. In fact, a
skilled dyer could get twenty colors
from the woods and fields.
Except for flannels, carpets and
blankets the warp was usually of flax or
cotton. A very pretty carpet had half
the warp of coarse wool doubled a
strand of green and one of brown. In
weaving when the woof came upper
most a very coarse wool thread was shot
in. When the 'cotton came up a very
fine thread caught and held it almost in
visibly. Beaten up thick the effect was
that of a moss', clouded Turkey fabric
Other carpets were woven in stripes or
plain, like webbing, the woolen woof
threads passing over and under the cot
ton warp two at a time.
Size was estimated by the number of
threads that, laid side by side, made
cloth the regulation yard wide. The
coarsest was 400. From that it went up
and up with hardly a limit except that
of the spinners' skill and patience. There
was scarcely anything they couldn't
weave on the looms jersey and serge,
and cotton and linsey, house linen, bed
linen, blankets and counterpanes. Th
counterpane was homespun high water
mark. Woolen ones had usually the
figure in colors skipped up on a white
or blue ground. Those of cotton were
left white and bleached till they dazzled
the eyes. Of some easy patterns a
clever woman could weave eight yards
in a day.
Of honeycomb, huckaback and dia
mond draper three yards was a good
day's work, Fancy patterns were more
tedious. The crown of skill and patience
was knotted cloth. The weave was per
fectly plain, but at intervals of an inch
a big soft' cord was woven in and pulled
up in little knots all along its length.
Over the body of the cloth they formed
regular diamonds. For the center they
made an elaborate arabesque design.
Down one side of the spread the maker
generally drew them up to shape her
initials, with either the date of making
in roman letters or her husband's name
opposite, to balance her own.
There was room, and to spare. Beds
in those days stood four feet from the
floor. Counterpanes were three " yards
by four without the fringe, which was
either woven with dates and initials in
the deep open heading or knitted in
open lozenge pattern to which deep tas
sels were attached. It fell over a val
ance, also homespun, and was either
fringed or edged with netted points at
Weaving was not the sum of house
wifery in that era. The good dames
knew as much of embroidery as their
favored great-granddaughters. One of
them has left behind her a monumental
piece of work, in which can be found no
less than nineteen different stitches.
many of them among the rarest and
most difficult known.
The netting needle and stirrup filled
up many a day. The bed was the piece
de resistance in furnishing then. It was
a tall four poster, and, besides counter
pane and valance, had netted curtains
and netted points, edging the long pil
low and bolster cases. Window cur
tains were netted, too, besides edgings
and fringes for all kinds of household
articles. In particular the "toilets"
that fell over the high square bureaus
had often a netted fall half a yard deep
around them. In addition, caps, ruffles,
purses and fichus were netted. The lat
ter were called dress handkerchiefs, and
folded high about the throat over the
low cut gowns. On them the netter
lavished her choicest art.
Sometimes the mesh was as fine al
most as bobbinet. Netted capes were
high in favor, but the square with long
ends was accounted better for young
women. Sometimes they had fringe or
tassels about the edge, or even a ruffle
of the net with a big pattern run in.
The handsomest finish was embroidery.
.ur tnat tne net was tacked smootti
over cloth, the figures were wrought
through both, then the under fabrics
were cut away, leaving something
closely approaching old rose point.
The women who practiced these arts
made tatting, knit lace, stockings, mit
tens, tufted gloves, overshoes, comfort
ers, garters, galluses and many things
besides. Before their works follow
them it might be well if some collector
should gather up and keep safe for later
generations a representative array of
the homespun masterpieces. New York
Journeyed Through Thibet.
Two travelers have lately arrived at
Shanghai, China, whose names deserve
not an unimportant place in the roll of
distinguished explorers. They are Cap
tain Bower, of the Seventeenth Bengal
cavalry, and Dr. Thorold, of the Indian
medical staff, and their claim to distinc
tion rests upon the fact that they have
journeyed through Thibet by the long
est route that can be taken through that
mysterious country. They followed an
imaginary line drawn from the Cash
mere frontier, in the northwest, to the
Chinese province of Szechuen, where it
adjoins the southeastern border of the
territories of the Delai Lama.
They were upward of ten months in
Thibet and a great part of their journey
lay through a series of elevated table
lands, seldom lower than 15,000 feet
above the sea level. On approaching
Lhassa they were turned back when
within eight days' journey of that city
by the officials, but after some parley
ing were permitted to proceed on prom
ising not to attempt to enter the Thibetan
capital. No foreign travelers have lef ore
followed the same route. New Orleans
A New Lifeboat.
The self righting lifeboat is expected
here soon on its way to Ilwaco. These
boats right themselves in ten seconds
after being-capsized. The boat expected
here is thirty feet long, seven feet beam
and three feet deep, caravel built and
with air chambers at bow and stern, cov
ered with waterproof canvas. The pe
culiar features in the construction are
the presence of a false bottom, which
runs from stem to stern precisely at
water line, and is furnished with two
circular gratings, into which, if neces
sary, pumps can be inserted. In the
sides, just about midships, there are long
flaps working on hinges which, when
opened, will permit any water above the
false bottom to run out, and when closed
are water tight. The space below the
false bottom is packed with dry tule
grass, which is even lighter than cork
and almost impervious to water. Wash
Pussy and Her feathered Brood.
Mr. James Forwood, of Darlington,
Harford county, has a cat which has de
veloped an interesting trait. Being kit-
tenless, she adopted as her own a brood
of motherless young chickens, which
come to her when she purrs and follow
her around. When any of the brood
stray into a neighbor's premises the cat
follows, and picking each chick up care
fully by the back of its neck, deposits it
safely on its owner's premises. Calling
the chicks to her the cat lies down and
hovers over them as fenderly and care
fully as their feathered mother would
have done. The chicks appear to accept
the situation and are thriving. Cor.
Royalty's Traveling Expenses.
Last year the queen's trip to Grasse
cost her 10,000, and it was estimated
that the Hyeres expedition would have
been accomplished for about the same
amount. The queen's visit to Darm
stadt, however, involved so much addi
tional expense that her majesty's out
lay in connection with her Continental
tour will be nearly 15,000, which is
the largest sum that has so far been ex
pended on one of these trips, except in
1889, when the queen went to Florence
and then visited Berlin on her way
home. London Truth.
